Well the automatic assumption that after they beat DET, they beat us......as opposed to our balanced (even if slightly biased) discussion on this board. It's on to how they stack up to GB. And if it's the Giants, they have them at home........they really want that home game!!
Of course, the real kicker is "I don't think the 49ers could beat even Atlanta."
And if we rematch Lions or Giants, they beat us.
There was a smart fan on their acknowledging that a great D is always a threat in the playoffs, but naturally not the majority.
It seems like in the NFL until the UPSTART officially beats the ESTABLISHED, they cannot be considered favorites....and to most fanbases -- threats.
Maybe it's good that the Saints host the Lions....if they win, they will have none of that road team swagger like the '07 Giants.
I've never wanted to beat these guys this much before......even when we were NFC West foes!!!!!!!!!!!!! (probably because we never HAD to).
